Our friends at Oskar Blues pioneered great beer in a can and, as mutual members of the canned craft club, this partnership was a perfect fit. CANfusion is a coming together—a fusion, if you will—of flavors from across the spectrum of brewing: spicy rye, tangy wheat and a bright citrusy hop aroma.

Oskar Blues is the granddaddy of canned craft beer. Like us, they have a fun-loving passion for the outdoors and bikes. It was a natural fit for them to adopt cans as a portable, durable way to tote their favorite beer on the trail, and in the process they paved the way for all other craft brewers to follow.

Pours a huge, soapy head that collapses and leaves nice lacing. Copper color. Bright, citrus aroma. Starts with a spicy, citrus flavor. An oddly large hop presence, but it fades quickly into a nice rye malt back comes through; rich and spicy. Finish is a touch of hop bitterness atop of deep, rich rye flavor.

This is definitely confused, but DELICIOUS. Rye bock? Bock? No. Rye? ABSOLUTELY! This seems more analogous to something like the August Schell Emerald Rye lager than a Rye bock. A definite miss on the style, but an absolute winner for any fan of rye!

Consumed 1/13/15

A: Lightly hazy, golden orange with some burnt orange - medium sized, off-white head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves some nice spots and splotches of lacing

S: Many aromas here, with an interesting mix of malts and some citrus - floral and juicy citrus, with some citrus zest - some light fruitiness - distinct spiciness of rye with some wheat - bock aromas at its core, with some pale and caramel grains, caramelized malts, light molasses, and bread crust

T: Sweet citrus, with some orange flesh, some citrus zest, and some grapefruit pith - interesting malt profile, with a big rye component, some wheat, and some more typical malts - caramel grains, caramel, sweet bread crust - lightly fruity with some sweetness - lightly spicy, earthy finish

M: Medium body, smooth, medium amount of carbonation

O: I'm not canfuse

There are a lot of competing flavors here, and it mostly works. I probably wouldn't have guessed this was a bock, if I didn't know what I was drinking, because the bock flavors are overshadowed by the unique combination of hops, rye, and wheat. It's interesting.

12/3...BCAA 11/12...pours bright copper orange, heavy high white foam. Very sticky lots of lacing. Bright floral nose with rye background. Taste is very different - tangy wheat with peppers. Bright hoppy taste with rye blended throughout. Clever.
